Eclipse photos

Kind of surprised I haven't seen any pics yet of the total solar eclipse from Monday. Any stories to tell?

I live in what was the 98% total area, so I drove a couple of hours southwest to Central, SC (near Clemson) and set up my equipment in my BIL's front yard, where I had 2 min 33 sec of totality. I shot about 150 images through my telescope, here are a few of them.

Neat pictures!

Here in MN it was cloudy so really couldn't see anything if there was to see. It never got any darker outside either like I expected.

Re: Eclipse photos

Mine are no where near that quality. Just my phone. We only had 70% here.
